Headwaters call for submissions

web site

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

The Headwaters program is the source of new plays of the West: plays set in the current, historic, or mystic western United States; plays by playwrights originally from or living in the West; plays that deal with themes connected to the real or mythic West; and plays that re-imagine what “West” means.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

To be considered for the Headwaters New Play Festival, a play must never have had a professional production and the playwright must be available to attend the workshop week (August 21-26, 2017 - Creede Colorado). Since 2015’s festival, our goal has been to more accurately reflect the diversity of human experience by reserving one of our two slots for a female playwright. We will continue this at this season’s festival.

We are seeking full-length plays, one submission per playwright.

2017 Submission Deadline is February 16, 2017.
Any plays submitted after this date, will go into consideration for our 2018 Festival. Responses will be sent out by May 1, 2017. CRT provides travel, food stipend, and cozy accommodations for the playwright. The scenic mountain beauty of this quaint arts town will provide endless inspiration as you develop your work. Plays read at the festival will be considered for full production in CRT’s 2018 season. For more information or to submit a pay, please visit www.creederep.org/headwaters-submissions
